Take a moment now to imagine the perfect size of your party: are you rounding up everyone for a Big Sky celebration, dreaming of a little romance on the ranch or are you planning a Montana-style elopement? 

A Big Sky Celebration

You love each other to the moon and back. Now it’s time to gather all your friends and family in a place where you can truly get a sense of the magnitude of your feelings. Raise the roof with the wedding of your dreams. Create memories not just for the bride and groom, but for everyone on your guest list. Your flower girl will never forget her first horseback ride. Your grandfather can make a toast in the beautifully weathered, elegantly restored Bull Barn. With a virtually endless list of activities to keep everyone busy from morning until night and a variety of venues right here on the ranch, no two events are ever the same. For parties of  20–150.

A Little Romance on the Ranch

Welcome your nearest and dearest with an intimate affair in a magnificent setting. Here, smaller celebrations, even micro-weddings, offer luxuries you can’t find anywhere else. With spacious accommodations and more than 70 outdoor adventures to experience together, this is no mere backyard wedding. You and your guests will dine on cuisine that rivals a Michelin-starred restaurant while surrounded by breathtaking mountains. We make a bit of magic, where people create lasting bonds over a horseback ride through the meadows or a dinner under the stars. More than a wedding, it’s the union of two loving families. For parties of 3–99.

A Montana-Style Elopement

Seize the moment with a thrilling and romantic ceremony for two. If you can dream up the perfect way to exchange vows at Paws Up, we’ll do everything we can to make it come to life. Get hitched on the banks of the storied Blackfoot River or on a private field with panoramic views of the Montana wilderness. For an intimate indoor ceremony, you can tie the knot in our Tack Room or Saddle Club. You have options that go from here to eternity.
